I was revived from a heroin overdose and I know I have to get clean. I’m worried about detoxing though, how long will it last?

Depending on heavy you were using, it should take about a week to detox from the drug physically but you will feel it mentally for longer.

You’ll get flu-like symptoms for the first 24 – 48 hours and then there might be other symptoms such as the sweats and nausea, which should subside within around 5 – 7 days.
